Summer Tiger News

Circling each other warily...
Circling each other warily...

Dear Sumatran tiger supporters,

This time we don’t have a very exciting report for you – after initially getting along well, our male and female tiger have been experiencing difficulties in getting along. Animal introductions can take over a year to accomplish successfully and our team are patiently working with these magnificent animals to ease their interactions. Unfortunately, this means we don’t have any news about mating, let alone breeding activity…

With fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers left in the world, every captive birth is a celebrated one ... but successfully breeding these critically endangered animals can be tricky business, as we have found out to our bitter disappointment in the past. On their native island of Sumatra, rampant poaching and habitat loss has pushed tiger populations to the brink. In the past century, four of nine tiger subspecies have gone extinct in their natural habitats, but with the help of well-managed breeding programs like this, we hope to see a different fate for Sumatran tigers.

We continue to hope for the best and thank you for your continued support.
